Shade Hotel Review

: Shade Hotel has a sharp urban vibe, beginning with its style, which is contemporary, clean and satisfying. Depending on which of the 33 guest rooms and five suites you choose, you'll find amenities such as Shoji-screened, two-person spa tubs with color therapy, 32-inch TVs, free Wi-Fi Internet access, Lavazza espresso machines and personal safes with a power supply for laptops. The California Executive Studio Suites have built-in desk areas and expanded wet bars for longer stays, and the Bridal Suite has a large storage area for gowns. Most rooms have balconies and some have fireplaces. A boardroom, courtyard and breakout spaces are available for meetings. The sleek lobby bar and lounge Zinc at Shade serves a small-plates menu and killer cocktails. The breakfast buffet is complimentary. On the rooftop Skydeck, you can enjoy morning yoga, a splash in the dipping pool or evening mojitos. Trilogy spa sits opposite the hotel and offers massages in a cabana at the pool. Bicycles are available free of charge for exploring the bike path that winds along the ocean.
